About

MAGNET (Media and Games Network) is a new shared space for faculty and students from across NYU who share an interest in the intersection of culture and technology. MAGNET offers students the chance to pursue degrees and research in game design, social science, digital media design, and computer science and game engineering, and includes undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students from NYU. The space was co-designed by the participating schools--NYU Tisch School of the Arts; the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development; the Polytechnic School of Engineering; and the Computer Science Department of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.

MAGNET is intended to pull faculty and students from a wide range of disciplines across one another's paths on a daily basis, using carefully designed shared spaces and intelligent integration of curriculum and research by participating faculty and programs... an Education and Technology Ph.D. student could get to know a Game Design MFA who is just the person to make a research project succeed... a Computer Science undergraduate might find herself part of a start-up game company after taking a few classes with students from Game Center and Integrated Digital Media... a Game Design thesis team might take up an experimental interface technology they saw demo'd at a talk by resident researchers.

MAGNET brings together world class faculty from multiple disciplines to better serve students and shape new forms of collaboration.

MAGNET Floor Plan

Tour

MAGNET is a studio like tech space that features labs, multi-media classrooms, student exhibition space, a black box theatre, an audio studio and mixing booth, an equipment checkout room, physical computing workspace, a large lecture room, human computer interaction labs, and collaborative work spaces for students to grow and experiment. Gensler Architects, NYU Facilites Management,and all of the departments involved worked very hard to make this space the hub for the next generation of technology at NYU.
